THÁI BÌNH — Prime Minister Nguyễn Xuân Phúc yesterday attended a groundbreaking ceremony for an infrastructure building and trade project at Liên Hà Thái industrial park (Green iP-1) in Thái Thụy District, the northern province of Thái Bình.
It is the first project to realise the resolution adopted by the 20th provincial Party Congress and attract more investment into Thái Bình Economic Zone (EZ).
According to Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Nguyễn Khắc Thận the 50-year project costs over VNĐ3.88 trillion (US$168 million) and covers a site of 588.8ha in Thụy Liên Commune and Diêm Điền Town.
Once operational, it is expected to fuel Thái Bình’s socio-economic development and contribute to the growth of the Red River Delta and the whole country.
Thân suggested the Government, the Prime Minister, ministries and agencies soon approve a project on the Liên Hà Thái industrial, urban and service area and allow the province to continue establishing other industrial, urban and service areas in the Thái Bình Economic Zone.
The chairman also asked for the speeding up of site clearance and compensation for displaced residents, promptly addressing difficulties arising during implementation.
Sprawling over 30,583ha, the Thái Bình EZ covers 30 communes and one town in Thái Thụy and Tiền Hải districts.
On October 28, 2019, the PM issued Decision No.1486 approving a master plan on the building of the Thái Bình EZ till 2040.
According to the 20th provincial Party Congress’s Resolution, the building of the Thái Bình EZ into an economic driving force is a political task of top significance of the province for the 2020-2025 tenure and future ones.
